“Not so good this year”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We were really looking forward to our meal at Ninis. Part of it was our fault....we ate outside and the flies were so annoying But the burrito was almost cold and so unappetizing...too many flavors...some of the included items need to be on the outside..not inside. Maybe we need to try something else..tacos?

“Outstanding taqueria!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We went there for takeout after reading so many nice reviews, and found Nini's to be every bit as good as people say. Knowing it might be our first and last time eating there, we (a couple) ordered a large selection of items, including veg quesadilla, soft corn tacos (veg and fish), and a variety of sides (guac, veg black beans, rice, two types of salsa).

The tacos were DELICIOUS. Nini's tops their tacos with a spicy, vinegar-based slaw that adds a nice burst of refreshing acidity that differs from so many "heavy" feeling tacos. The guacamole was also a winner, as was the mango and habanero salsa. In fact, the only item amongst everything we got that we didn't love was the rice, which was frankly dried out and kind of flavorless. Zia Taqueria has much better lime-cilantro rice!

Rice aside, the food was great and the counter service was brisk, efficient, and pleasant. Everything we got, and it was a lot, came in at ~$35; a couple could easily eat a great meal there for about fifteen bucks.

I would recommend Nini's unconditionally to anyone visiting Durango.

“Flavor Flavor Flavor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Very similar to Chipolte, but the flavors are better - deeper seasoning and spices. Try the Guacamole - real avocados! Easy walk from any of the hotels on main street. The staff is friendly and fun. It appears that many of the locals come in regularly because everyone was on a 1st name basis. Prices are around / under $10 for a meal and a drink.

“So Delicious and Fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is definitely a step-up from today's burrito place. Their margaritas are surprisingly good and the food was seriously yummy. Don't miss the patio out back - it's quiet, clean and shady. What a great place.
